Style (The OTP Series) - Chelsea M. Cameron



Kyle Blake likes plans. So far, they’re pretty simple: Finish her senior year of high school, head off to a good college, find a cute boyfriend, graduate, get a good job, get married, the whole heterosexual shebang. Nothing is going to stand in the way of that plan. Not even Stella Lewis.

Stella Lewis also has a plan: Finish her senior year as cheer captain, go to college, finally let herself flirt with (and maybe even date) a girl for the first time and go from there.

Fate has other plans for Kyle and Stella when they’re paired up in their AP English class and something between them ignites. It’s confusing and overwhelming and neither of them know what to do about it. One thing they do know is that their connection can’t be ignored. The timing just isn’t right.

But is there ever a good time for falling in love?


So a little while ago Chelsea was looking for people to review this lovely book and I just couldn't say no. Although I wont be releasing what she was looking for specifically as I don't feel its very important, I am releasing that I have no regrets enquiring about getting a copy of the book.

We follow 2 beautiful characters, both very different but extraordinary to me. Kyle is all about getting through high school and heading off to a good college where she'll date boys and then graduate, get a job, get married and all of the heterosexual stereotyped things, she loves hr plans so when Stella Lewis comes into the picture starting to rip up Kyles plans she has no idea what to do or how to act. Stella is the cheer captain and she cant wait to finish high school and head off to college where she can finally be herself and date a girl and go on from there. These characters are truly beautiful, very different from each other but the forces just pull them together.

The plot is as amazing as the characters alone, it develops at such a perfect rate I couldn't put it down, page after page I'm begging for the characters to just get together and as a reader you're begging for it to just happen and get it over with and I'm just internally screaming throughout because the characters are perfect for each other, meant for each other I just couldn't cope. I'm sucker for love like this when its so accurately portrayed like it was, the love didn't suddenly happen or instantaneous love it was developed from 2 people just not wanting to be around each other to them never wanting to be apart from one another.

Throughout the story we get to see all sides of the characters, there are no secrets or information we don't know about them it's just a fully open and well portrayed tale of 2 girls discovering themselves and falling in love. It's all so realistic and true that I can't cope, people don't tend to understand that in a same sex relationship or discovering yourself and coming to terms with what you find out that its not as simple as it sounds, its nerve wrecking and confusing but its beautiful and a weight off of your shoulders.

As a whole this book blew me away, I was so happy and full of joy when the end of the book came, I'd love to see more of both of these characters because of just how great and real they were. It's LGBTQ+ and it's completely beautiful, its a 5/5 from me and although there's a lot of swearing within the book and there is some sexual content it still makes for a great read and is quite easy to get through in a single day if you have the time. I recommend this book for literally anyone who feels as though they are alone in trying to figure themselves out and literally everyone else.
